Pity the poor moth. It never gets the love that goes to its Lepidoptera kin, the butterfly.
The good folks at Long Nature Center in Davie, however, are determined to change that. Once again this year, they’ll host South Florida’s only celebration of National Moth Week, with activities scheduled July 30 and July 31.
